Top 10 Most Disappointing Albums of 2008

There were some serious disappointments in the album release department this year. The following list includes groups that have put out at least A) one good record or B) multiple great records in the past. I had high hopes for each of these albums, however, I was ultimately left with a bad taste in my mouth.

(in order)

1. My Morning Jacket - "Evil Urges"

2. The Magnetic Fields - "Distortion"

3. Squarepusher - "Just a Souvenir"

4. Silver Jews - "Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea"

5. Death Cab for Cutie - "Narrow Stairs"

6. Spiritualized - "Songs in A&E"

7. Cold War Kids - "Loyalty to Loyalty"

8. Tokyo Police Club - "Elephant"

9. Moby - "Last Night"

10. Ghostland Observatory - "Robotique Majestique"
